It's Summertime! You know what that means: no school and more time to work on stuff I love to do, like this! Just found out about this new feature and decided to make a quick font out of it!
Old font tastes like modern. Stylistic set for Chrysalide Serif Modern.
WORK IN PROGRESS.

A lot has happened since I opened this account. Six birthdays, a life-changing diagnosis, other pivotal life events. Well, this may very well be my last post on here. With the start of a new chapter in life - getting a job, starting a business, volunteering, schoolwork, etc. - I've no more time to really work on these like I used to when I was, say, eleven. I hope y'all understand and I wish y'all the best. Thanks ~
A typeface inspired by American typefaces from the 1800s and the Art Deco-styled coffee shop I visit often in Des Moines, Iowa.
Combining a slab-serif, expanded typeface with ornate detailing brought challenging consideration to the legibility of the font. It’s used best for short, bold messages or an energetic initial cap.
Blackletter, as small as possible, as elegant as possible.
Fun fact: The name Minotur came from the shortening of "minimal textur".
I don't know if this has been done before.
It's just a simple & elegant solution utilizing 4 parallel lines.
See how neat the letter 'B' is formed by 6 rectangles.
Inspired by Frodo7's Voxelstorm. Some of these shapes look impossible, but they are actually possible, if you imagine that the corner of each cube is touching the centre of the face of another cube.
I took inspiration from Kurrentschrift (Spitzschrift) and the Thai alphabet to create something that looks South East Asian, but is actually just latin script in disguise.
I'm not sure I'm quite happy with the k. It seems a bit too twirly. The x i stole from Kurrentschrift, but I'm not sure it is legible in this setting.
